New study examines how pollutants cause genetic changes that lead to infertility in multiple generations

A single exposure to an environmental contaminant during development may be all it takes to affect fertility in adulthood and later generations. With the support of a five-year $2 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the National Institutes of Health, University of Florida researchers hope to shed light on the mechanisms of environmentally-induced infertility.
